the refs made a bad call and we lost, nothing else to it.

Place the blame where it deserves to be placed. You can't turn the ball over four times (three of those inside our own 30 which led to 21 Falcon points) and expect to win. We handed the Falcons that game on a silver platter and they took advantage of our mistakes. Sounds familiar.
I agree that our own mistakes are what cost us the game....no doubt. With that being said, I would like to know your thoughts about that movement call right at the end of regulation time?

I agree as well. He did trip him on purpose.

No one understands why there wasn't a penalty for the late hit--there should've been, you're right, there was one thrown for a late hit on Vick.

I've only been watching for a year, but it seems to me that every team gets inconsistent calls made by the refs. It does seem though, that some teams seem to be singled out with a bit more regularity.

There was also someone in another forum that mentioned the clock. Did any of you notice that it didn't stop when one of their guys went out of bounds right before we got the ball at the end of the 4th? And they didn't reset the clock to show that 17 seconds that was lost by not stopping it. That 17 seconds would've given us the chance (even after a 10 second run-off) to make that FG at the end. Someone else rewound the tape and said that the clock was NOT re-set, so that's another mistake by the refs...that one cost us the game if it happened that way. No one from our team/coaches/etc noticed in all the excitement.

To my knowledge, it was a false start by rule. When the other 10 players on the field are set, and someone moves in the manner that Washington did in that instance, that's going to get called almost every time. It's unfortunate because there were 8 seconds on the clock at that point, so the offense could have taken a couple more seconds to get everyone properly set without having to hurry as much as they did.

I agree. Were there bad calls? Sure. Example: First quarter. Vick deep ball. McFadden with the coverage. McFadden never looked back at the ball and completely raped the Falcon's WR. How that wasn't pass interference I will never know. I have to wonder if the out cry towards the officiating would be this loud if the calls were against the Falcons instead of our beloved Steelers? Eitherway, we should never have put ourselves in the situation to take those penalties.

Excessive celebration. I recall Cowher stating about a two weeks ago that "It will never happen again.". Well, it happened again. Shot ourselves in the foot with penalties (dumb ones) and turnovers. IMO, we have nobody to blame but ourselves for that loss.

Nate did not flinch, he took a full step. Right call from what I saw.

I guess my question is, was that a good call? I didn't see the movement....there were problems with the screen I was watching.

Speaking of the clock, I noticed on two different occasions when we had the ball the time clock was clearly on zero and there wasn't a delay of game penalty called.

If there is anything to be upset over, it's the lack of discipline this team is showing. The celebration calls, the fumbles, the movement on the line, personal fouls. WTF??? This is the second game this season that has bit this team in the behind.

I think coach Cowher is thinking about joining us here in NC, because he doesn't seem to have his hands on the reigns of this team.
